View Full Version : stiff steering

05-12-2010, 04:45 PM
Anyone had to replace their steering rack/cable? The steering is getting really stiff in my 2000 Prostar and the parts shop says I have to pull the assembly out to get a replacement due to the different lengths used in building...

Any truth to the different lengths part? I figured all he would have to do would be to look up the boat and have a part number... :huh:

I've got an '85 ss that was tight when I got it. I didn't have to replace anything but I did put a lot of lube to the cable and kept working it both front and back. I'm sure your 2000 is much different than the old set up. I've never heard of the different length scenario. Hopefully one of the more experienced guys will chime in to help you out with that question.
